looking. this week, we learned that rick santorum is speaking at the bik cpac meeting next month. and sarah, i can see russia from my house, palin. but, today, the biggest guest of all was announced. and he's literally the last person you'd want to hear talk about the future of the republican party. >> that's right, mr. 47% himself will be the guest of honor. you can't make it up. the more i hear the gop talking about change, the more i really know it remains the same. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >> more of the right. let's play "hardball" ♪ ♪ >> listen, they arise from the last row of the tea party. their voices reach up to the highest levels of the gop. the republican party, a long time ago, the prudence and fiscal responsibility is now the war party, the stop the government party here at home. >> watch tonight as someone who's pandered is attacked op openly, ir rev rantly, disgustingly. >> i told you tmd come to this. now we've got the proof on camera. they listen only to the loudest, angriest person in the back row. mitch mcconnell,
gingrich, there's a fresh face. alan rich, rick santorum. don't forget wayne lapierre, the kid on the block. and even a curtain call for mitt romney. it doesn't look like the far right's grip on the gop is fading after all. john is a senior adviser to the santorum presidential committee, at least for the last one and roger simon is a pro here at political comments for politico. john, why the same old song, the same old faces? >> well, you know, everybody is talking about this rebranding and they almost this is like money ball where we're supposed to get rid of all our players and bring new players in. the change in marketing terms is not rebranding, it's repositioning. what the republicans did wrong, it wasn't except for a few cases bad messengers, we didn't resonate with the hard-working people around this country. we fight too much for taxpayers for the wealthy, we look like we fight for loopholes for big corporations and we've lost our way fighting for average hard-working blue collar americans. and that's where we have to change. not the players per se. although there are new players li
, for example, your point of view or do you believe people like rick santorum. wednesday's vote say challenge to the scouts's very nature and another attempt of the left to remove god in the mind of the intolerant liberal mind that must be forced to conform. do you believe your voice is being considered or rick santorum and other who is agree with him. >> i think it's the voice of the 21% of the boy scouts that exited the organization over the past 13 years. that's the voice. the voice of the president of the united states of america on sunday. i think the boy scouts are going to do what's right and come down and decide this policy does not work for gay youth. >> they want more deliberate review of the membership policy. what do you believe that means? >> this sounds like the don't ask don't tell policy in the military in the 90s. it took them 15, 16 years to overturn that policy. there is a tremendous amount of damage done during that time. the don't ask don't tell policy was dropped and it's a nonissue. once they stop being so fearful, they will realize this policy is only hurting them. >>
is with his second amendment vest, as he calls it. looks like rick santorum is getting ready to run for vice president once again. >> well, you know, what does the gop need except for someone who is violently violent? i say against women's reproductive rights and for the second amendment because those things are working for them right now. i think rick santorum's campaign is a bad are memory for the people looking at the gop and trying to figure out its future. you know, as someone who reports on some of the more interesting fringes of the gop, i mean, i welcome him to the race. and i think it's important to say that he is doing this. he is a true believer. santorum believes that this is a mission of his to compete in these arenas and that he is acting on faith in a lot of ways and i kind of don't want to make fun of that but at the same time, as someone who would like to see a vibrant opposition party, don't know if rick santorum is what the gop needs right now. >> let's take a look at the guy
point were actually leading. i mean rick perry actually lead. michelle bachman lead, rick santorum, herrmann cain lead. >> rose: i mean it was republican of the month. >> yes, exactly. there was a poem when herrmann cain pulled out, lamentations of the late night comics. there was a lot of good material. rick perry, i sort of liked him as they came in partly about whether they rhymed or not. like rick perry rhymed with the space beneath the hair is airy. and cain was a good rhyme. >> rose: herrmann cain. >> he was a good rhyme and then the other people had good nick names like newt. >> rose: peak of that, just read this one. this is called anybody out there want a be president. >> the party's old establishment was stunned to see that mitt by newt had been outgunned. the horror at the thought of gingrich grew, for fall the newtcenter simply wouldn't do and thus the party's pooh-bah breath was baited in hope these would get mitt rehabilitated. in florida which many of them guess would prove to be the most important test, the poobahs pulled in all their reinforcements to furnish mitt
. and allow local troops to make their own decisions. rick santorum calls it a war on scouts. he says the board is abandoning the organization's founding moral principles. the former presidential candidate thinks it's a challenge to the scouts' very nature, and there the left is trying to remove god. santorum also predicts every troop will get sued, or members will just simply leave. santorum calls this the end of scouting and says, quote, i hope the board of the scouts doesn't have its fingerprints on the murder weapon. texas governor rick perry is equally dramatic. >> what has worked very well for scouting and to have popular culture impact 100 years of their standards is inappropriate. >> but this isn't about a fad or popular culture. scouting membership has dropped 21% since the supreme court upheld the gay ban in 2000. adult membership is down 14%. and there are almost 13% fewer scouting units nationwide. boy scout sponsors know we're a center-left nation. people like santorum and perry pretty much by the numbers are out of step. let's turn to michael rogers, gay activist and man
kill the son of a-- but we can't torture him. have i got this right? >> and rick santorum joins us, nice to see you. >> great to see you, and rush, you had it right and that's the hypocrisy of this. that you have an administration that wanted to have civilian trials for terrorists and not even american citizens, but have civilian trials for everyone. and i just think that the hypocrisy of now saying we're going to be able to kill them if we suspect that they are a senior level operative is hypocrisy. >> greta: kill americans, that's the distinction. >> that's the distinction it, i agree he that rush is absolutely right on. now let's get to the policy. the policy itself so he is a hypocrite. let's put that in >> greta: he meaning? >> the president for the positions he's taken and by the way so is everybody on the left who complained about bush and his tactics and comparing that with obama's as again, you don't hear them complaining about the president doing what he's doing. let's look at the policy and my concern is that if that american citizen is in theater, is in afghanistan or w
, a former very to the rick santorum presidential campaign. it's really nice for you being here tonight. thanks for being here. >> thank you. and yes, i am in charge. you ask who is in charge. so i could make that proclamation tonight. >> it's an odd choice to make that on prime time msnbc, but more power to you for taking the reins this way. >> i got to tell you. this is the honest god truth. whenever i'm on your show, which isn't frequently, the next day i hear from conservative friends i saw you on rachel maddow last night. my first reaction is why were you watching it. i want you to eno when you look at the next nielsen ratings or whenever you have, i think you have more conservatives. why? i'll let you be the judge of that. >> i always take great comfort in the well informed nature of my hate mail when people can quote what they don't like that i'm saying for the exact same reason. let me ask you, since we do come from different ideological places. you have just been through this, and everybody expects the party to have a little soul-searching moment after going through something t
is former presidential candidate, rick santorum. what do you think of this snub of chris christie? i'm still recovering from rush limbaugh's throaty lust-a-thon for chris christie. >> he never said that about me, so -- look, al cardenas can invite who he wants. i look forward to go. we'll be doing a lot of things to talk and rally conservatives at a time as you look over my shoulder and look at that capital, you don't see a lot of conservatives fighting for the principles that made our country great. and hopefully we can rally at that cpac conference and move out the from there. >> all right. well, i'm still trying to understand, though, why this isn't -- i mean, you have this picture, right, of chris christie and barack obama, right before the election. and i know, by the way, today, mitt romney just gave money to chris christie's gubernatorial campaign. so mitt doesn't seem to be holding a grudge. but a lot of people were really upset about that, thought it was influential in the election. uh i'm just wondering if this was a part of it. the paul ryan voting for $600 billion in tax increase
? >> yes i think the most misunderstood was hitler. >> john: speaking of documented monarchs, rick santorum rick perry has stumbled back in the news. he said the boy scouts should not soften their policy, but he likes them hard and preferably thick. the governor said three things made this country great. scouting no gays, and he forgets the third one. is there anything that rick perry could do not to make himself look like a buffoon? >> he's just ridiculous. the fact that he equates it to popular culture. if anyone is cool, that's it. i'm poll culture popular culture. >> john: you're a jewish gay person. >> do gays run pop culture. >> oh, yes. >> considering the ""brokeback mountain" ad that he did i think he should back away slowly. >> john: let's not forget he's still against letting gay troops serve openly because having to fight beside a gay soldier made compromise christians values while he's killing people. are the scouts going to be able to make this adjustment gracefully? or will it be like segregation. >> until the 1940s they had segregated troops. it will take time. it will take
republican presidential candidate rick santorum is in little rock, arkansas. both of you thanks for being here today. so much to talk about, so much focus on the budget cuts. we've heard the doom and gloom scenario what could happen, everything from meat inspections to tsa security checkpoints, all of that could be impacted. why is this so hard to get done, and alison, i'm going to start with you? >> if we knew the answer to that, we wouldn't be in this situation we are, deb. it's unfortunate when it comes to the big issues, the can gets kicked down the road to the end of the road. we have folks on recess and not playing golf and not addressing the issue. i'm afraid we have to deal with sequestration and going to face these cuts because we need to replace the sequestration with serious deficit reduction and the democrats aren't doing that. the republicans have come forward with serious cuts, that don't involve tax increases and that's how we need to go about doing this. the democrats seem to want to increase taxes and that's not how we're going to go about helping out in the terrible fina
of the candidates that are in that primary. i think that for the republican primary voter, senator rick santorum was much more in sync than senator clinton was. she was a pro-war candidate and obviously did not have the promotable apparatus. shouldn't have the bodyweight. >> through talking about the early months? >> what we know about the republican party reign other than it has an evangelical population. well, what do we know about mitt romney? [laughter] >> i think it's a testament that he didn't begin this with an ideological base. yet he was able, particularly in those debates, to take into position, in many cases, people disagreed with him, like on health care. to convince the republican party's that he had the qualities he wanted to be their nominee's. >> every week it was the new mole game. and then he sort of blew up with the bloomberg survey. that is kind of where it ended. who were these voters? who were they? i mean, it seemed like it was the same 20% of the electorate. >> i would just like to add on about this. governor rick perry, senator rick santorum, anyone who underestimates th
, rick santorum, his new job is that he is a columnist for world net daily. rand paul is being touted by the supposedly serious conservative heritage foundation as the big speaker next week on reagan's birthday where he is going to give his manifesto on what republican foreign policy should be. that's going to be next week on ronald reagan's birthday, rand paul. but, you know, it's fitting, because we're coming up on reagan's birthday. and did you hear about the horrible obama muslim marxist thing about his kenyan home? did you hear? >> this is one wall that probably shouldn't be torn down. this apartment building used to be the home of a young ronald reagan. it was denied landmark status, and the university of chicago is ready to demolish it. the university is also trying to become the site of president obama's presidential library. that's drawing strong concerns the university might turn president reagan's former house into a parking lot for an obama library. >> did you hear about that? chicago close ties with the obamas, all of them, tearing down ronald reagan's boyhood home in ord
to be a step to potentially alienate some of the more conservative members -- >> you have rick santorum writing saying this is a war on the scouts. >> right. no. that's absolutely ridiculous. as somebody that grew up in the organization, spent 12 years of my life as a scout, as somebody looking to the long term, full destruction of the scouts only occurs if the bsa does not lift that ban and how young people are of lgbt equality in this country. >> thank you so much for joining us and we hope to see you soon. >> thanks for having me. >> we'll talk more after the actual move is made. >>> time for the "gut check." new jersey governor chris christie, well, apparently if he can dish it out, he can take it. christie poked fun of the weight while a guest on the show last night. one point he as you said pulled out a doughnut and resurrected some of the favorite letterman quote fat jokes. >> here's two of them we particularly liked. first one is celebrity birthday today. chris christie turned 50, blew out the candles on the cake and wished for another cake. a billion dollars will be spent on potato chi
was he was losing consistency to people like newt gingrich and rick santorum who know one would have ever thought of running for president. and still could never get into their heads they could imagine them as president. yet republican primary and caucus voters were choosing them rather than this good looking guy with credentials. something must have been wrong with him. >> right. watching his advisers it's like they never registered that. like you said they carpet bombed newt. the fact that newt came back and hit them hard. >> like freddy krueger. >> right. came back like freddy krueger like he always does seemingly. but newt and rick perry did unveil the bain attacks. they did romney's work on one hand, but there was a way to say perry and gingrich isn't going to win. but they are both revealing something disturbing about your candidate and we better get a story ready. we better figure out how to counter that. they never figured out how to counter it until election day. >> one winning strategy for the obama campaign, an uh-oh moment for team romney was to define romney early when he was
president nominee mitt romney, and rick santorum. they will no doubt get cheers and applause from the audience for recycling versions of exactly the same lines that made them such losers. today, cpac announced they landed the biggest loser of them all, mitt romney, so cpac has rewritten the position on romney, when ann coulter said it would be a mistake to nominate him in 2011, to cheering for him as the republican nominee, to this year, inviting him to give the key address at the loser's conference. this offers some suspense, will romney be cheered or booed for being such a loser? and most importantly, what will he add to the romney greatest hits reel? >> [ speaking in a foreign language ] >> i'm mitt romney, and yes, wolf, that is also my first name. any old girlfriends here? no one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. i met a guy yesterday, 7 feet tall, handsome, great big guy, 7 feet tall, name is rick miller, portland, oregon, he started a business, of course it was in basketball, but it wasn't in basketball, i figured he had to be in sports, but it wasn't in sports. i
, mitt romney, sarah palin, newt gingrich, rick santorum, so hail hail, the gang's all here coming out. >> right. >> if think rebranding you how in the heck is this rebranding. >> interesting is mitt romney wasn't popular with conservatives. they never really trusted him. i've been thinking about what would be the logical -- where is an area he could contribute. part of the problem is you can't really put your finger on any one particular issue, that he was super-passionate about. elevator safety for garages? >> maybe that. maybe tax avoidance strategying, but i think that's part of the problem for him, but it's not so much the familiar faces that are the problem for the republican party. it's the fact that their rhetoric and their message and policies are so tired. if these same people came out, but they had some fresh ideas, that would be interesting. the problem is the republican party has drawn a line in the sand, they will not increase taxes. they will not stand for anything that could be amnesty. they will not go to cap and trade. very clear about what they're against, but no one
